The 2018 Shadow of the Colossus remake is one of the best looking console games to date, giving us stellar visuals and technical aspects unparalleled. The game’s overall aesthetic and vibe is one that will wisp you away to another place, and will leave you awestruck by the scale of its battles. Despite these stellar aspects, you may find yourself often frustrated at mechanics that bring down the overall experience.
Not to diminish the accomplishments of this remake, but it's all possible because Team Ico's Shadow of the Colossus is so impossibly perfect. It's epic and majestic and emotional and imaginative and breathtaking. There are so many superlative adjectives you could attach. Shadow of the Colossus' reputation is as great as some of its tallest colossi. This remake might just help some people see that a little more clearly.
The original Shadow of the Colossus is easily one of my favorite games. It was among the first that made me want to violently point at the screen and yell, “Look! Video games are art!” at anyone within earshot. Bluepoint’s remake feels different in some respects, but is exactly like Shadow of the Colossus in the important ways. Scaling beasts feels appropriately epic, and the few story moments that exist still tell a heart-wrenching tale of sacrifice in the face of impossible odds.
